Look at What Active Rain Did- Buttons on Top... I Love Bling!

AR buttons

It was like waking up on Christmas morning to find Santa had been at your house.  Did you see the new Google+ button and all the buttons added to the top of your post?

The AR Staff has been working this weekend and look what we have!  So now someone doesn't have to scroll all the way down through our blogs... or past line upon line of "LINKS"  to Like or do whatever it is they want to do with us!

Thank you Active Rain!

In theory I love it, but I don't like what it does to the titles of the posts....shrinks them over to the left side.   Looks crowded to me.

BLiz- I'm using Google Chrome and can't get to the Blogroll either.  I can go to Groups or type in someone's name to search. 

BARFF- I guess they haven't worked out all of the bugs.  Maybe that's what happened to your car.

Debbie- I haven't had a chance to check everything out.  Just got back from my walk.  I'll go to FB to see what they say.

Toni- We're just rerouted for now, right!!  Did they ever get your Tablet thing fixed?

Sharon- I have to agree about the "staging" of it. Maybe they'll get that fixed as well.

Kathy, I too went and posted about it this morning ~ I was as excited as you.  But something really has gone amuck... Did you find anything else out?  I found your post as it came in my Google alert for ActiveRain.   At least you know Google is 'liking' you!

BARFF- any room to negotiate?  Sorry

Lee& Pamela- hey, I didn't know that??? (about Google Alert)  I've been just trying to go to blogs from the comments on mine and typing in names.   I like it but I'm not sure if I like what it does to the titles.

Kathy, I think it's great AR is looking to equip our posts with all the bells and whistles. They will get the 'pear' thing worked out as well!

Who doesn't love a little bit of Bling Kathy?  I think it's pretty cool.

Kathy, Seems like with all the new fun things, it takes some time to iron out those glitches.

Now I'll have to push them all to see what happens LOL. They do crowd out the title.

Kathy, this is the second post I read this morning regarding the new buttons.  They are nice, but seems a bit crowded with the post title.

Wanda- they're usually good about getting everything fixed.

Malcolm- bling in every staging... that's what I say.  

Joni- I bet everyone's been "liking" and "plussing".

Sandy- it never takes them long and for us on the east coast, we forget they're 3 hours behind us. 

BARFF- i hate car trouble. 

Michelle- Ah... I forgot about that one.  And, yes, that would be perfect.  I write my post at night (usually) then have to hurry to post it in the a.m. before I head out for my walk. 

Janice- start pushing.. and yes, maybe they'll fix that.

Hi Kathy--I just saw these the other day and thought it was a phenomenal addition.  Was delighted to see they added the Google +1.  Now I think I have to change my footer!

Janet- Yes, the buttons are a nice feature, just wish they didn't force the title to look squished.

Good morning, friend.  They have been a great addition and I am actually using them to post to some of my outside sites and seem to be getting good responses from people who have followed me back from LinkedIn or Twitter.  It does, however, seem to be slowing down the uploading of individual blogs . . .
